In this episode of Locally-Sourced Science, we feature a guest podcast from four college undergraduates who took part in a summer Research Experience for Undergraduates at Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research. Marty Alani, Erica Sawyer, Stefanos Stravoravdis, and Chris Morales Farfan, guest producers for Locally-Sourced Science, talk about their summer research, their thoughts about plant science and what kinds of science experiences they will seek out in the future.
Later on in the episode, we interview Dr. Luisa Torres, about her summer experience participating in the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellowship. During her fellowship, Luisa was an intern at National Public Radio, or NPR, and wrote for the NPR blogs NPR’s blogs ‘Shots’, ‘goats and soda’ and ‘The Salt’.
Finally, Patricia Waldron reports on local science events.
